Sandy Berger Is a National Hero

Sandy Berger, seen shortly after his deposition in the Cone of Silence - WonketteSandy Berger deserves a medal just for allowing this lede to exist:


In a chandeliered room at the Justice Department, the longtime head of the counterespionage section, the chief of the public integrity unit, a deputy assistant attorney general, some trial lawyers and a few FBI agents all looked down at their pant legs and socks.

If you'll recall, Berger, Clinton's former National Security Advisor, went into the national archives, stole some documents about 9/11 and an original Velvet Underground demo acetate, stuffed them into his pants, and deposited them at a nearby construction site.

Philip Zelikow, former executive director of the 9/11 commission, argues that if the commission had known more about Berger's mishandling of the sensisitive documents, they could've prevented 9/11 from happening completely. Or something.

Berger could not be reached for comment as he was auditioning for a role in a forthcoming remake of Get Smart.
